On The Cover: Between Shades of Gray by author Ruta Sepetys
Recently got this book in my mail and here is what it says on the cover...
'Have you ever wondered what a human life is worth?
That morning, my brother's life was worth a pocket watch........
One night, fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother and young brother are hauled from their home by Soviet guards, thrown into cattle cars and sent away. They are being deported to Siberia.
An unimaginable and harrowing journey has begun. Lina doesn't know if she'll ever see her father or her friends again. But she refuses to give up hope.
Lina hopes for her family.
For her country.
For her future.
For love - first love, with the boy she barely knows but knows she does not want to lose......
Will hope keep Lina alive?
Set in 1941, Between Shades of Gray is an extraordinary and haunting story based on first-hand family accounts and memories from survivors.'
